Every makeup product works its own magic, but when it comes to awakening a bare face, nothing does it like blush. The choices are endless. Powder or cream? Matte or shimmer? And, of course, what shade? Today, we’re narrowing down your options to the most underrated yet natural-looking one: cheek tint.
Of all the blush types, cheek tints deliver the most au naturel wash of color. Just build ‘em up or sheer ‘em down depending on your ideal flush. With a formula so seamless and lightweight, you’ll forget you’re wearing makeup. Go forth and glow with our three picks below!
